Food Pairings for Penfolds Koonunga Hill Shiraz
Smooth red wine, inoffensive, but nothing spectacular either. Good everyday wine. Would buy again. Kick on first sip but mellows out with further drinking.
The first day this wine was pretty awful--very very bitter. On the second day though, it was so, so much better. It was smooth, but with a hint of peppery spice. So good!
This one got better from day 1 to day 2 to day 3. Day 1 it was not very good at all and I could understand the previous reviewer. When I threw it in the fridge on day 3 and poured a glass it was actually quite nice, tasted like a Shiraz should with red fruits, some dark fruit, and a little pepper on the semi-dry finish. Considering the three day average I give it 3 glasses, but it was a very enjoyable 4 on day 3. I would encourage anyone who buys a bottle of this to open, then put a bottle topper in it, and let it sit for a day or two, then try it.
Very easy to drink
Juicy, ripe black fruit, red berries, with fairly soft tannins and not overly peppery or oaky.
This a very aromatic wine! We uncorked the bottle and left it open for about an hour before pouring. Upon walking into the room after my boyfriend poured the wine, I could start smelling the nose. The aroma at that point has notes of cranberry/raisin, but still was very tight. Color is a pleasing dark red-burgundy. After swirling in a large glass for a few minutes, the nose gained more heat and became less fruity. It gains an herbal aspect, which my boyfriend and I thought might be something of a sage/tarragon combo. Upon tasting, I was rather dissatisfied. It has an very bitter front. The wine has a lot of heat, which makes for an unpleasant sensation on the palette, basically numbing the tongue and cheeks. The finish can simply be described as bitter.

Fresh and lively, a juicy mouthful of blueberry, blackberry and cedar flavors that remain crisp through the finish. Drink now.
Inky violet color. Cassis, cherry and tobacco on the nose. Showing its cabernet element right now, offering zesty red- and blackcurrant flavors and a bitter cherry pie quality. Tannins frame the sweet fruit on the finish, which is attractively sweet, focused and persistent.
